EVA # 1
Author: Luis Diaz
Purpose of EVA: Collecting Martian regolith samples, suiting up with the use of spacesuits, and drone flight.
Start time: 11:05
End time: 12:15
We headed to Marble Ritual to take soil samples and sent the drone to conduct exploration shots in the Candor Chasma area; however, we experienced a slight delay of 2 minutes as we deviated a few meters off the path, quickly returning to the right route.
Once at the scheduled destination point, Andrés began collecting 3.3 kg of Martian regolith while Luis and Marina deployed the drone to execute automatic photo capture tasks for the subsequent generation of a 3D model and contour lines. These will enable us to identify future exploration zones.
